Views: 22

Texas has a good idea. Arrest the Undocumented for Trespassing. They have already arrested over 37,000 for Trespassing. This sounds like a good law for all the states to adopt this law.

Texas Spokesperson Ericka Miller said those arrested included gang members, human traffickers, sex offenders and others.

“Had we not been there, all of it likely would have crossed into the country unimpeded,” Miller told The Associated Press. “The state of Texas is working to send a message to those considering crossing into the country illegally to think again.”

What world dictators keep or try to keep the opposition off the ballot? The United States joined several other countries that keep or try to keep the opposition off the ballot.

The Biden administration has enacted or threatened sanctions against foreign nations who have kicked opposition candidates off the ballot, leading some lawmakers to question the Colorado Supreme Court’s ruling this week to remove former President Donald Trump from the state’s 2024 election ballot.

Russia, Bolivia, Nicaragua, Venezuela, Belarus, and now the United States has joined that list. Thank a Democrat.

The United States used sanctions against these countries and asked the world community to also sanction these countries.

Smith trying to stop Trump from using evidence. Again Smith has run to the judge. This time his goal is to keep out evidence. Special Counsel Jack Smith wants to prevent President Trump from blaming provocateurs and undercover agents for the January 6 Capitol riot.

“Through public statements, filings and argument in hearings before the court, the defense has attempted to inject into this case partisan political attacks and irrelevant and prejudicial issues that have no place in a jury trial,” Jack Smith’s 20-page filing said.

“Although the court can recognize these efforts for what they are and disregard them, the jury — if subjected to them — may not. The court should not permit the defendant to turn the courtroom into a forum in which he propagates irrelevant disinformation, and should reject his attempt to inject politics into this proceeding,” Smith wrote according to the court filing

But, but $20 an hour was to create a fair livable wage. Pizza Hut across California lays off drivers.

Views: 30

But, but $20 an hour was to create a fair livable wage. Pizza Hut across California lays off drivers. So what happened? Why would anyone be surprised? This is only the beginning. The increase goes into effect come April. Don’t be surprised if more layoffs happen.

KTLA 5 reported:

Two large Pizza Hut operators in California are laying off all their delivery drivers ahead of a new state law that raises the minimum wage for fast-food workers to $20 an hour, Business Insider reports.

The layoffs impact hundreds of Pizza Hut locations across the state including Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, Ventura and San Bernardino counties and Sacramento, and involve more than 1,200 in-house delivery drivers.

The job cuts will take place through February, according to federal employment notices obtained by Business Insider.

In 2022, Gov. Gavin Newsom of California signed the FAST Act into law. It called for the minimum wage for fast-food workers to increase to $22 an hour in 2023. But corporate chains such as McDonald’s, Chipotle, Chick-fil-A, and franchise-advocacy groups fought the law. A coalition of restaurant-industry organizations said the law could raise costs for fast-food restaurants by $3 billion. They rallied to get a referendum on the ballot.

A new law, AB 1228, replaced the controversial FAST Act this year. The minimum-wage increase for fast-food workers was changed to $20 an hour. The new law was viewed as a compromise between the labor unions representing fast-food workers and the restaurant industry.

So, now those folks will have to rely on third party delivery services and you know that won’t be cheap. The law affects 557,000 fast-food workers at 30,000 restaurants in California.

The Colorado Judges said that Democrats are picking which Republicans can run for President.

The Colorado Judges said that Democrats are picking which Republicans can run for President. I’m sure you heard that the Colorado Supreme Court ruled that they and they alone can decide what Republican is allowed on the ballot.

Claimed that A Gorsich ruling gave them the permission to keep Trump off the ballot. Here’s the ruling.

“As then-Judge Gorsuch recognized in Hassan, it is ‘a state’s legitimate interest in protecting the integrity and practical functioning of the political process’ that ‘permits it to exclude from the ballot candidates who are constitutionally prohibited from assuming office,'” the state opinion reads.

So, explain to me when Trump was ruled constitutionally prohibited? You can’t. Putin and Banana Republic countries have kept the leading opposition off the ballots. Just saying.

Winning for now. Labor Secretary Fails Senate Confirmation. Acting Labor Secretary, Julie Su wasn’t confirmed by the Senate who refused to confirm or deny her appointment.

This now goes back to Biden’s desk for him to renominate her.

“Upon Secretary Walsh’s departure, acting Secretary Su automatically became acting secretary under its organic statute, not under the Federal Vacancies Reform Act,” a White House official said in July. “As a result, Su is not subject to the time limits of the Federal Vacancies Reform Act and she can serve as acting secretary indefinitely.”

How afraid is Biden of Trump? Ask the NY Times.

Times reporters Katie Benner, Katie Rogers, and Michael S. Schmidt published an article on April 2, 2022, about Biden’s frustration with Garland about the lack of prosecution against Trump, according to two people familiar with Biden’s comments.

“The attorney general’s deliberative approach has come to frustrate Democratic allies of the White House and, at times, President Biden himself,” the Times reported. “As recently as late last year, Mr. Biden confided to his inner circle that he believed former President Donald J. Trump was a threat to democracy and should be prosecuted, according to two people familiar with his comments.”

“And while the president has never communicated his frustrations directly to Mr. Garland, he has said privately that he wanted Mr. Garland to act less like a ponderous judge and more like a prosecutor who is willing to take decisive action over the events of Jan. 6,” the report added.

 

(1) David Sacks on X: “Reminder: Lawfare came from Biden. According to NYT (4/2/22), Biden told his inner circle that Trump should be prosecuted for Jan 6 and Merrick Garland should stop acting “like a ponderous judge” and take decisive action. Democrats across the country took their cues from the top. https://t.co/3odoGFHGYN” / X (twitter.com)

Americans Yawn at CDC Warnings About ‘Tripledemic’ — No Surprise There.

Views: 54

The CDC’s most recent weekly vaccination update says that “receipt of the COVID-19 vaccine is low across all socio-demographic subgroups and has consistently varied by age, race and ethnicity, poverty status, health insurance status, and urbanicity.” As of December 2, fewer than 18% of adults reported getting the updated COVID-19 vaccine since Sept. 14, and about another 15% of adults said they would “definitely” get vaccinated.

RSV — respiratory syncytial virus infection — is another one of those bugs that poses its most serious risk to the 60-and-over crowd. Although a serious RSV infection might require hospitalization, the uptake rate among the eligible 60-plus cohort is just 16%.

Vaccinations for the ordinary flu are down a bit, too. “Adult vaccination rates for influenza reached their peak for the 2020-2021 cycle,” the Washington Examiner reported on Monday, “with 50.2% of those over 18 getting vaccinated. For the 2022-2023 season, however, only 46.9% of the same population obtained their shot.” Rates are expected to be about the same or lower for the 2023-2024 flu season.

The drop isn’t huge, but the trendline is clear: Americans don’t seem to be all that worried about the flu — and aren’t concerned at all about COVID or RSV.

That’s not for any lack of effort on the part of our public health system.

The CDC began its big vaccination push over two months ago with this tragically hip tweet from CDC director Mandy Cohen.

Fetch? Retch!

Whatever your opinion about the safety or efficacy of this or that vaccine, we can all agree that seeing a 44-year-old medical doctor/public health official try to be hip is painfully cringeworthy. Besides, as any “Mean Girls” fan could tell you, “Stop trying to make ‘fetch’ happen! It’s not going to happen!”

Chicago health officials took a more traditional (and much less wince-inducing) approach on Monday, with Dr. Colleen Nash, associate professor of pediatrics in the division of infectious diseases at Rush University Medical Center, warning, “We’ve now been lucky enough to kind of live with COVID but still enjoy normal life and activities and things. And that is directly attributable, at least in part, to vaccinations. So I would really encourage people to do that if they haven’t already.”

While reports show that Illinois’ hospitalization rate for COVID is “ticking up,” the actual numbers aren’t anything like 2020, with an additional 1,251 COVID hospital admissions this week statewide. And yet, according to the Chicago Tribune, only about 11% of city residents are fully current on their COVID-19 vaccinations.

The CDC tried on Twitter/X again on Saturday, reminding readers, “‘Tis the season for joy and family. Now is the time to get vaccinated against COVID-19 and flu before you see your loved ones again.”

Visit vaccines.gov to find vaccines near you.”

The ratio, as the kids like to say, is epic.

While the replies were all over the place in tone, this one reasonable-sounding tweet captured the general sentiment.

When vaccination rates are down even for the innocuous (and generally trusted) flu shot, it’s clear that the CDC no longer enjoys the clout it used to with the American public.

On a personal note, I’ve done everything a columnist can do to keep this piece 100% evenhanded. The only strong opinion expressed here was a joking one about Dr. Cohen’s use of “fetch” in her October 4 tweet.

FBI Director Christopher Wray told the House Judiciary Committee in July that the bureau’s actions were limited to “a single field office.” But a report by Judicial Watch tells a different story.

Judicial Watch reported that the 98 pages it obtained through a Freedom of Information lawsuit showed that the FBI memo from earlier this year that tagged some Catholics as violent extremists due to their religious beliefs was reviewed by the agency’s Office of General Counsel. Coordination also took place with Portland and Milwaukee officials.

This is what was uncovered so far. How many other FBI offices may have also investigated and here’s the difference. Conservative Catholics and Catholic groups.

Catholic churches have been attacked more than 200 times since May of 2022.”

Why the Supreme Court must stop State Courts from Gerrymandering.

Views: 11

Why the Supreme Court must stop State Courts from Gerrymandering. We see it in Wisconsin, New York, and Pennsylvania to name a few. Legislatures create the districts and state courts step in and set their own. The US Supreme Court needs to put a stop to this. Except for Gerrymandering the state courts need to butt out.

Now in instances where the New York Legislature removed all but two Republican districts, then yes that was proper for the courts to step in. The courts picked an independent person and fairness was achieved.

State courts controlled by one party have no business creating their own districting maps. The Constitution is plain when it says that the maps should be created by the State legislature less Gerrymandering.
